This trapazoidal Tribeca loft has a long southwest-facing window wall that is set on a diagonal to the structural grid of wood columns. The apartment’s layout highlights the tension between these two primary elements while satisfying the spatial requirements of our clients. To create the maximum functional flexibility requested by the clients, sliding cherry doors are used throughout the loft -- their infill panels ranging from transparent to opaque as befits their specific location within the design. These transparent and translucent panels also bring the abundant southwesterly light to the interior spaces, resulting in the atmosphere of an open loft rather than the actual cluster of discreet rooms.
